Description of Proposed Guidance Document Changes
Adult Protective Services (APS) receives and investigates reports of abuse, neglect, and exploitation of adults 60 years or older and incapacitated adults aged 18 or older. APS in Virginia is state supervised through the Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services (DARS) and locally administered through local departments of social services (LDSS). Section 51.5-148 of the Code of Virginia requires DARS to establish minimum first year training standards for APS workers in the Commonwealth. Training is an important component of this work, which seeks to protect the health, safety, and welfare of vulnerable adults. All APS workers and APS supervisors in LDSS must complete the training within one year from the date of implementation of the minimum training standards or within the first year of their employment in the APS Program. For more information on the proposed changes please see the ORM Economic Review Form posted below.
